I really like the way the server works: no downloading and unzipping files, pretty cool.

For all of you ex computer wargamers (Bill, Koz, JJ, Frank, Pat), the turns take all of 5 minutes or so, so you guys could easily play this.

It is interesting how they opted to run their multiplayer games. You send your turns through their system/server. They keep tabs on games, gamers, whats being played ect., and they dont have to bother anyone with questions. Quite ingenius if you ask me.

But what if that server goes away for whatever reason(s)? Can you still play h2h?

Even without the H2H play, the game is fully engrossing playing the Campaigns. They already have 2 new 1939 & 1940 grand campaigns for sale on the website with a ton more to come. {I plan on waiting til a bunch are out and look for a bundle pack at a reduced price}

From what i have read between the lines on different websites i belive this game is going to be expanded into other wars/time frames and other theaters of WWII. I dont think the server is going anywhere anytime soon, but i could be wrong. Lets hope not.

Right now, the answer is no. The only way to play h2h is through their server. But I think this game will be around for a long time and really can't see them ending h2h play anytime soon.

And Kent is right; the single player campaign game is really challenging and fun.

This game is really just an upgraded version of Panzer General. It's not rocket surgery. But it has great graphics, better ai, and a lot of new features.

I bought War in the East, but I really don't have the time one would need to really get into it. For those with limited gaming time looking for a little bit of fun, this is a great game.
